Hi,

I just wanted to share some pictures that I clicked in April this year when I visited these places. It was surreal. I am sure you guys must have seen thousands of pics of these locations but hey, I just feel like sharing. :su

Unfortunately, when I was there, aliens dint land in stonehenge, I dint get to see the lochness monster and there were no signs of giants on the causeway. Sucks for me :passifier:

I had kinda similar disappointments.
Stonehenge was "closed", the Causeway had 3,000 schoolkids marauding over it, none of them giants and last I had a nap on the banks of Loch Ness... someone stole my sandwiches.  Someone with quick feet and a Joe Bloggs hoody, so am ruling out Nessie.  She has better taste in disguises and sandwiches. (was only cheese n onion)

I have to say that It was completely worth it though. For some reason, I felt very much at peace when I was there. Maybe, it was because it was a dream come true or maybe because of the atmosphere..

It's in my nature to be underwhelmed, methinks.  :( Eiffel Tower?  Meh.  Looks like a scrap merchant's wet dream. Imo.

(apologies)

No, funnily enough there hasn't been so many this year.  I've seen us get bitten to bits in the past!

I wasnt. It was raining when I was there and really cold too! I was up on the deck the whole time during the boat tour keeping an eye out for nessie.hehe. I used to read about how mysterious the water is. I have never seen water like that with almost no visibility.

You slept on the banks??? I always say I can sleep anywhere. I think thats a place I would NOT be able to sleep. I would be Nessie lunch and there'd be noone to get pics...

Same here, and that was in July! It's been a rotten summer this year. We never did get to go on one of those boats either but haven't given up on it yet. It's on my 'things to do' list :D
